    Before you start your internship

    Step   Summary & details                                            
    • Apply for internship
    Min. 4 weeks before the start of the internship

    Fill out and submit the online application. After your faculty supervisor approves you internship, the Education Office will send you the contract via email. This takes about 8 working days. See  'Application procedure'  

    • Return signed internship contract
    Max. 2 weeks after starting your internship.

    Have the contract signed by the specialization internship coordinator and institutional supervisor. Send the whole signed contract to fdp-masterthese@maastrichtuniversity.nl. 

    Without a signed contract, your internship wll be considered illegal. If this appears to be the case, your graduation will not be guaranteed.

     • Return signed permission statement
    Max. 2 weeks after starting your internship.
     
    This form will be printed along with your clinical internship contract
    • Arrange ethical approval for research internship

     

    If your research takes place at FPN, you and your supervisor will submit your research proposal to the Ethics Review Committee Psychology and Neuroscience (ERCPN). If your research takes place at FHML, your supervisor there will inform you what the requirements are for ethical evaluation of your research.

    In case you do an external internship (in the Netherlands or abroad) and that institute has its own Ethical Committee, then the ERCPN would like to receive proof of ethical approval by that committee.

    This could be a letter stating that the research has been approved, signed by the supervisor at the external institute. If the host institute does not have its own Ethical Committee, then you should submit your research to the ERCPN. Your UM supervisor will assist you with that.  See Ethics Review Committee Psychology and Neuroscience (ERCPN). 

    • Upload your final version of the research proposal within 6  weeks after starting your internship.

    Submit your proposal via dors-fpn.maastrichtuniversity.nl
    See 'Research proposal'

    Rounding off

    Step                                              Deadline or turnaround time
    Submitted your final work? Now deregister via studielink.
     
    • Terminate your  Dutch study grant.
    • Terminate your student travel card.
    •  
    See the graduation procedure for details.

    If you do not de-register, you will stay registered until the end of the academic year (31 August).  You are not automatically deregistered after your graduation, except if you graduate in June, July or August.

    The months that you stay registered after your graduation date will be regarded as your second bachelor’s or master’s registration. This means you will be charged the high tuition fees of at least €708 per month. So be sure to file a de-registration request in Studielink as soon as you have submitted your last piece of academic work (i.e. exam or thesis). Don’t wait until you receive your results – that will be too late.
     
    Studielink
    File a request for termination of registration via Studielink and log on to your Studielink account, go to 'mijn inschrijvingen' and select the study programme from which you wish to deregister.  Fill out ‘graduation’ as reason for this termination.

    The Student Service Centre (SSC) of UM will process this deregistration once your graduation has been processed by the Board of Examiners. This may seem strange, because you don’t know at this point whether you will actually pass this last exam and graduate. But it is very important to deregister at the right time.

    The Board of Examiners establishes your graduation date as the last day of the month in which you meet all the programme requirements, are correctly registered and have paid your tuition fees. If you are still

    Considering a new stuy abroad?
    Check if your new university needs a legalised diploma
    If you go abroad, the recognition of your educational documents is  a major issue. For assessment, many countries will only accept legalized documents. Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs (DUO), section Diploma-recognition  &  Legalization, legalizes Dutch educational documents on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. For more information please visit the website of DUO-IB-Groep.
     
      
     
      
    Thesis result: after 15 or 35 working days?

    Your supervisor has to asses the thesis within 15 working days after your submission.

    For Academic year 2020-2021: 
    From 24 July 2021 until 5 Sept. 2021  (summer holiday period),  the assessment deadline for the supervisor is extended to 35 working days.  

    In any case, if you submit your thesis this academic year,  you can expect the result on or before 15 September 2021. 
     

    Until Friday 24 July 2021:
    Normal assessment period of 15 working days

     For example (hand in -> supervisor submits result):
    Friday 16 July 2021 -> Friday 6 August 2021
     
    Saturday 24 July 2021 through Tuesday 27 July 2021:
    Extended assessment period of 35 working days
     
     For example (hand in -> supervisor submits result)):
    Saturday 24 July 2021 -> Friday 10 September 2021
    Tuesday 27 July 2021 -> Tuesday 14 September 2021
     
    Wednesday 28 July 2021 through 31 August 2021:
    You can expect the result on or before Tuesday 15 September 2021.
     
     

    In other words: If you hand in between Tuesday 24 July 2021 and Tuesday 31 August 2021, the supervisor submits the result on or before 15 September 2021 in Dorsweb.
    It can take up to two weeks before you can view your results in the Student Portal.
